1) unfortunatley - column headers are printed only on the first page - a long outstanding issue.
will this be fixed ?

2) no initial/opening balance for general ledger ?
at least as long the old fiscal year is not closed ?

IMHO for accountants a "balance" must always show and include the initial/opening balance because otherwise it's not a "balance" but an intermediate sum of moves.

I have tried to explain this multiple times
* cash/bank accounts can be closed a few days after the beginnning of the new fiscal year.
* all other accounts will be closed only after 3-6 month after the beginning of the new fy
** a modern accounting system must be able to show the (current) initial balance regardless if the previous fiscal year is closed or not
